Apple HDTV leaks in iOS 5 code with A5 dual-core processor

Ahead of the Apple iOS 5 release date later this week the iPhone and iPad software has leaked that the formerly Steve Jobs fronted company is to update Apple TV with a dual-core processor

With the eagerly awaited iOS 5 mobile operating system to be rolled out across iPhone, iPad and iPod devices this Wednesday, October 12th, a section of code within the software has revealed the next-generation Apple TV unit will boast a dual-core processor.

Following previous rumours that have suggested the next-generation Apple TV will support Full HD 1080p content the reference of Apple TV 3.1 with the same ARM A5 dual-core processor found within the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S has only added to the speculation that the streaming device is set for an upgrade.

Apple TV Features

Officially unveiled alongside the updated range of iPods during last September’s Apple event the second generation of Apple TV was a mile away from the Cupertino company’s original pet project scaling down to just a quarter the size of its predecessor and playing host to the A4 chip found within the Apple iPhone 4.

With integrated Wi-Fi doing away with cables the latest Apple TV allows for 720p HD video streaming as well as enabling users to view images stored on their PC or iOS enabled device on their TV sets.

Apple HDTV Release Date

Originally tipped to land at last week’s October 4th ‘Let’s talk iPhone’ event that saw Apple officially unveil the iPhone 4S, it is expected that the dramatically overhauled Apple HDTV unit will now be unveiled alongside the iPad 3 in the opening quarter of 2012.

Would a speedier processor and 1080p Full HD video capabilities tempt you into adopting Apple’s TV service? Let us know via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
